Eligibility:

We are thrilled to announce an open call for artists to participate in a groundbreaking art exhibition that delves into the captivating theory of genders by the influential philosopher Judith Butler. This exhibition aims to provide a platform for artists to explore and interpret Butler’s profound ideas on gender, encouraging dialogue, introspection and creative expression.

Guided by Butler’s revolutionary concepts, this exhibition seeks to challenge societal norms, deconstruct binary constructs, and celebrate the diverse spectrum of gender identities. We invite artists from all backgrounds and disciplines to submit their works, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, video art, performance art, and mixed media.

Through this exhibition, we aspire to showcase the richness and complexity of gender as a performative act, constantly in flux and subject to individual interpretations. Artists are encouraged to explore themes such as the fluidity of identity, societal expectations, queer perspectives, and the intersections of gender with race, class, and sexuality.

We encourage artists to think critically, push boundaries, and present their unique artistic perspectives in alignment with the concepts explored in Butler’s groundbreaking texts, particularly “Gender Trouble.”

Selected artists will have the opportunity to showcase their works in our gallery space in Wedding-berlin, providing them with a platform to engage with a diverse audience of art enthusiasts, scholars, and individuals interested in gender studies. This exhibition aims to ignite conversations, inspire new ways of thinking, and foster a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding gender.

There is no fee for submission. However, this is not a grant-funded exhibition. Artists share the cost of presenting the show with a participation fee of 40€ (regardless of the number of artworks they will showcase). The reason for that is that we need your support to continue our projects, and in return, you will be part of the marketing campaign as well, as we will offer an art consulting session.

Requirements:

  • HD photos of 3-5 artefacts of yours
  • Artist Statement (3rd person, max 120 words)
  • Artwork (Title, Size, Medium, Year and Price)
  • Link to social media and/or Website

We welcome submissions from artists from all disciplines. Email us your work and briefly explain who you are, some details about your work, and why we should be one of our participants.
